Biff is a jock hippo villager in the Animal Crossing series. He first appeared in Doubutsu no Mori, and after his appearance in Doubutsu no Mori e+, he remained absent from the series until Animal Crossing: New Leaf. His name may come from buff, a slang term for someone with strong muscles, which relates to his jock personality.

In New Horizons, Biff has the fitness hobby and will wear Sporty Shades and lift heavy dumbbells while exercising.

Characteristics[edit]

Artwork of Biff from Animal Crossing.

Appearance[edit]

Biff is a brown hippo with tan cheeks and hooves. The insides of his ears are purple, and his tail is striped, alternating between brown and tan. In New Horizons, Biff's skin is more saturated, resulting in it being a shade of red. Additionally, the inside of his ears are now magenta.

Personality[edit]

Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.

As a jock villager, Biff is energetic and has an interest in physical fitness and activity. He often talks about exercise or sports and may brag about his physical fitness. While often friendly to the player, he may comment on their fitness. During conversations with other villagers, he generally gets along well with peppy villagers due their similar hyper personalities and will also get along with smug villagers, while he may offend snooty villagers by critiquing their fitness and annoy cranky villagers with his hyper personality. In New Horizons, Biff goes to sleep at 12:30 AM and wakes up at 6:30 AM.
